Why Learning Tangent and Where is it Headed?

A few weeks ago, I spent about an hour talking with Kirsten Lombard, founder of Resounding Books. We talked about Common Core, why we homeschool, and in the segment, why did Learning Tangent start and what do we hope to accomplish? It's only about 11 minutes long, take a listen to find out more about what makes me tick. Why I do what I do, and what we're planning for paid subscribers to the print magazine.

One thing though - just don't look at my face! I apparently need some training for video interviews, I'm not saying I've got a face for radio, but I certainly don't have the training for TV.

Enjoy and leave a comment for me!

  1. You did a great job. We thoroughly enjoy the magazine. I also really like Kirsten. Her stance and your’s echo mine.

  2. Gail you did a great job! I think the magazine is wonderful and a true blessing to many homeschooling parents.
